Mini Lift: Q&AAsk a Question
Why Would my Mini-facelift Scars (Not Keloid) Around Ears Be Getting Worse at 2 Months Out?
They are not becoming keloid, they are getting redder and look "irritated". The skin directly around the scars (front and back) is turning a light maroon color. My Doc says they are inflammed, not infected, but doesn't know why. She suggested hydrocortizone (.1%), which i've been using for a week, and to stop using anything with too many chemicals (switched to baby shampoo & a gentle face soap). Could oral Ketoconazole be causing this? (a recent 3-week course for systematic yeast problem).
